The View From 1776

Liberals Have to Believe in Magic

Liberal-socialism is, from the first step out of the box, founded upon mythology, and its theories are ivory-tower abstractions so unconnected with reality that they fall within the realm of magic.  John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, and their fellow socialists behave like wanna-be actors auditioning for wizard roles in the next Harry Potter movie.

  1. The paradox of the liberal/socialist following of abstract ideas is that the further a country strays down this line of government, the more orthodox and less radical they appear as their ideas run out of steam when they don't work, giving the increasing impression that traditionalists are the ones with the interesting and radical ideas.

  2. Socialism, rooted and maintained in Humanism,is forever doomed to lack of traction on Reality. Again, the missing element in any human solution is an accurate definition of the human creature. Force-fed "ideas" has no more traction on Reality than bras on donkeys or a patty-cake national anthem. Teddy Kennnedy is a prime example of a socialistic clod without virtue posing as a pipe-dream animator at Disney. Seek Reality!

    The way we define 'human' determines our view
    of self, others, relationships, institutions, life, and
    future. Important? Only the Creator who made us
    in His own image is qualified to define us accurately.

    Many problems in human experience are the result of
    false and inaccurate definitions of humankind premised
    in man-made religions and humanistic philosophies.

    Human knowledge is a fraction of the whole universe.
    The balance is a vast void of human ignorance. Human
    reason cannot fully function in such a void; thus, the
    intellect can rise no higher than the criteria by which it
    perceives and measures values.

    Humanism makes man his own standard of measure.
    However, as with all measuring systems, a standard
    must be greater than the value measured. Based on
    preponderant ignorance and an egocentric carnal
    nature, humanism demotes reason to the simpleton
    task of excuse-making in behalf of the rule of appe-
    tites, desires, feelings, emotions, and glands.

    Because man, hobbled in an ego-centric predicament,
    cannot invent criteria greater than himself, the humanist
    lacks a predictive capability. Without instinct or trans-
    cendent criteria, humanism cannot evaluate options with
    foresight and vision for progression and survival. Lack-
    ing foresight, man is blind to potential consequence and
    is unwittingly committed to mediocrity, collectivism,
    averages, and regression - and worse. Humanism is an
    unworthy worship.

    The void of human ignorance can easily be filled with
    a functional faith while not-so-patiently awaiting the
    foot-dragging growth of human knowledge and behav-
    ior. Faith, initiated by the Creator and revealed and
    validated in His Word, the Bible, brings a transcend-
    ent standard to man the choice-maker. Other philo-
    sophies and religions are man-made, humanism, and
    thereby lack what only the Bible has:

    1.Transcendent Criteria and
    2.Fulfilled Prophetic Validation.

    The vision of faith in God and His Word is survival
    equipment for today and the future.

    Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by
    nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of
    Criteria. Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive
    characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural
    foundation of his environments, institutions, and re-
    spectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is orien-
    ted to a Freedom whose roots are in the Order of the
    universe. The Human Solution. selah
